Coop Opening: Brand Recognition

Yes, it’s a shameless plug, but I never claimed to have any shame so here goes.

BRAND RECOGNITION, COOP’s new show of paintings and works on paper is opening this Saturday night at sixspace in Culver City.

CC is the new black – for galleries – and this weekend kicks off the new season, which means NINETEEN galleries are having openings on Saturday, all close enough to each other to do a walking tour and see them all.

In this show COOP continues to explore the large format he initiated in 2004 with his 78-foot painting, PARTS WITH APPEAL. The paintings are huge and really amazing in person.

Of course I’m biased and want you to go to sixspace first, but biased or no I’m not wrong — check out what everyone else is saying about the COOP show:

And as of this morning a Tony Pierce interview on LAIST.COM.

Last but not least, COOP’s fine art website is now live and ready for your (NSFW) enjoyment.

Vive la COOP!
